Pulled the VPI trigger

Just bought a VPI Traveler turntable. Considered a Rega and Pro-Ject in the same price range

In that price range, I don't think you made a mistake. What cart and phono pre-amp will you use?
Did you audition all three turntables ?
Tell VPI what cartridge you're using so they can suggest the proper counterweight.
